By the end of June, a meeting was held to sum up the first development stage of the process of bringing Big Picture Learning to Israel. To this end, the IDE, which represents BP in Israel, collaborated with JDC-Ashalim. At a meeting attended by senior staff from six major education networks (ORT Israel, AMAL, AMIT, Na’amat,, Branco-Weiss and Dror), we presented the products of the development processes and also celebrated the conclusion of the selection of the first three schools that will introduce this move into Israel. The IDE staff members who had gained expertise in this model led this very successful meeting.
